Feature and Follow Friday 11

Heck yeahs, it's that time again!!!!  Hoppy Friday Everyone!!!  Or Thursday, as the case may be… ;)


HOW IT WORKS:
For anyone who’s new—Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meet and greet meme hosted by ParaJunkee and Alison Can Read, where she features a blogger of the week, and all us awesome bloggers can hop around, introduce ourselves, and meet each other.

If you want to join in the fun just hop on over to Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read for Feature and Follow Friday.  Then just add your name to the list and start hopping!

Easy-peasy ;)
Now for the Q and A portion of this weekend:

This week, Parajunkee asks:
Q. In books like the Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood) series the paranormal creature in question "comes out of the closet" and makes itself known to the world. Which mythical creature do you wish would come out of the closet, for real?

Answer:

Genies.  For real.  Yes, I know genies usually come out of lamps, not closets.  Now, I totally love to read about all those supernatural creatures and creepers, but there are always so many RULES imposed on how witches and wizards use magic…And vampires and werewolves are always tempted to kill you… And, yes, genies are known to be kind of tricky, but you just gotta know how to work the system.  If something’s coming out of MY closet, I want it to be able to grant wishes; that’s all I’m saying.

New follower hopping through. Genies! Awesome answer. Mine is at Great answer. Mine is at http://www.alaskanbookcafe.com/

_yay_ said...

Thanks for stopping by Book that Thing! Glad you like my blog's design. :-)
I'm here to return the follow favor...
Your pick is genius! Of course you could wish for other supernatural creatures then...
Happy Friday to you, too...

The Happy Booker said...

Oooh great answer answer! One of the best I've seen (jealous!) Genies would be awesome! I briefly considered choosing a Luck Dragon (Neverending Story) but ended up choosing the Fey because I love the legend and myth associated with them. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'll definitely be making some return visits to yours.

Escape by Fiction said...

Great choice. Genies are wicked cool. Have you read the Out of the Bottle series by Jenny Schwartz. I really liked it:)

Good reading ~ Escape by Fiction

Chrystal said...

That is an awesome choice. :) I never thought of genies. :)

nymfaux said...

@Christina--following you back!--That Alaskan picture is *GORGEOUS*!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

nymfaux said...

@_yay_ thanks for stopping back! :) us cute blogs should stick together ;)

lennystew said...

I totally forgot about genies! It'd be nice to find one of those too!

nymfaux said...

@The Happy Booker-- *blushes* awww, thanks so much!-- I totally <3 The Neverending Story--Luck Dragon is an awesome pic--but you're right about all the fae myths; they have so many interesting stories!!!!--Have you ever read Tam Lin? It's kind of a darker one I read a while back, but it's stuck with me!

nymfaux said...

@Escape (love your blog name!)--I haven't read Out of the Bottle--But now I totally have to go look it up!--Thanks!!!

Kylie1403 said...

Oh thats sooo cool! ESPECIALLY if your find one like in Aladdin hehe

- Kylie @ the Talking Teacup

nymfaux said...

@Crystal--thanks! ;) It just kind of came to me, I haven't read a lot of genie books, or anything, but who else will grant you wishes?

nymfaux said...

@Lennystew--I know, right?!?!? thanks for stopping back--I meant to tell you, your blog button totally rocks!!!

nymfaux said...

@Kylie1403--I would *LOVE* to find Aladdin's genie!!!--especially if it has Robin Williams' voice!!!

p.s. every time I see your blog pic, I just think what amazing posture that fairy must have, to keep that teacup steady! ;)

Mimi Valentine said...

Oh my gosh, yes!! Genies would be so amazing! Vampires and werewolves and faeries and stuff are too common and slightly dangerous... but genies? Pure awesomesauce! :)

Except everyone would be fighting to get their hands on one if they "came out of the closet" because of the whole three wishes thing. x)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm definitely following you back!

Hope you have an awesome weekend!

Book Love 101 said...

Thanx for the follow! I made sure to do the same! Have a Happy Follow Friday! : )

Alissa said...

A genie would actually be totally awesome. Never would have thought of that!

Patricia Lynne said...

LOL I see you've thought this through. Or more thoroughly than I did. Great answer.

Danielle Gorman said...

Great answer. New follower. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Danielle @Ramblings From This Chick

Jenni Elyse said...

It would be so cool if genies were real. I have some wishes right now that I'd like granted, lol.

Amanda said...

Genies are such a cool unique answer! They'd be pretty awesome to have around too!

Amanda @ Letters Inside Out - FF & Top Spot

Fireflywishes said...

Genies would be awesome to find out they existed.. although I would feel sort of bad for them, they'd have every person trying to get to them in order to get their wishes!

Thanks so much for following, following back :)

Alison Can Read said...

Hopping through. Maybe you could keep the genie's lamp in your closet. I'd love a genie if he'd grant me more than three wishes.
My Hop

Katie said...

That is such a smart idea to ask for a genie, & you're right, you could just wish other paranormals here. (:
Magic Is In Words

Sonny said...

I never thought of this one! Great answer. Thanks for the visit and Happy Friday!

nymfaux said...

@Mimi Valentine--Thanks for the follow!
--Also I have a solution--sometimes there's a clause where you can't wish for more wishes, but I've never heard that you can't wish for more genies! ;)

nymfaux said...

@Book Love--Thanks back! Hope you have a great weekend!!! :)

nymfaux said...

@Alissa--I know, right?!?! lol Thanks!

nymfaux said...

@Patricia Lynn--lol, I assure you it was very spur of the moment!

p.s. congrats on your book--that's so exciting!!!

nymfaux said...

@Danielle--Thanks!--and back at ya, answer-wise!--best reason for *not* choosing vamps and werewolves: You'd pee your pants--lol

nymfaux said...

@Jenni Elyse--congrats on the feature!!!

nymfaux said...

@Amanda--Thanks! I'd like to think they'd be pretty handy to have around! (at least in my mind)

nymfaux said...

@Fireflywishes--that's a good point #thinking --in my mind, I think I'd use one wish for lots more genies, which would equal lots more wishes....but I'd always make sure to leave the last wish to free the genies; it's only fair...unless they're evil genies...'cause maybe they were trapped for a reason....

nymfaux said...

@Alison--thanks for hopping by!!!--I think it's so cool that you're co-hosting the hop!!!

And keeping the genie's lamp in the closet is an excellent suggestion!

#workingon3wishesloophole ;)

nymfaux said...

@Katie--"Magic is in the Words"--very pretty--and very true--especially when making wishes!!! Thanks!

nymfaux said...

@Sonny--Thanks!

I just saw you're from WI, too!!!--My home state and I'm always excited to meet people from home!!! #plots-ways2import-cheesecurds2CA :D

Jessica (Peace Love Books) said...

I wouldn't have even thought of genies! That's so awesome! And thanks for stopping by my FF!

aloi said...

Genies is an awesome pick! I never even thought of that. :-) How cool.

Nerd Girls said...

Totally didn't think of genies! Great answer!

Dead Trees and Silver Screens said...

Thanks for being a new follower!

I didn't think of genies! Great choice.

Bekka said...

Best. Answer. Ever.
I never would have thought of it, but now that I have, I totally agree. I could use three wishes right about now!

Oh, and following back!

Bekka

Chazz said...

That is an awesome answer! The wishes would be good, so long as you didn't need to write a whole contract to make sure it didn't go wrong :)

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog. I'm following back!

Lari said...

Aw. Genies is a great pick! I was totally thinking of my own selfish desires when I picked fairies, but I think genies could give me more things I would want. They would make excellent servants. MWAHAHAHAHA

Thanks for stopping by. I'm a follower.

Jennifer | Book Den said...

Oooh, yes! A wish granting genie is totally welcome to step out of my closet! Definitely! :D

SweetMarie83 said...

I love your answer! I never would have thought of genies, but that's actually a brilliant idea. And I love what you said in my comments about if you had a genie, you'd be able to wish for other magical creatures. LOL! Very clever.
